WHY I STARTED THE BUSINESS
Last year, We were given the opportunity to appear on Sugar Rush Netflix: Season 1. I was sit at my computer one day, and the casting information popped up. The rest is history. After the Netflix opportunity, we decided to combined forces in the old Sugar Sisters Location. I, Ashley, was tagged regarding the location in Delano on Facebook. We could not pass up an opportunity of a ready made bakery. It was God sent, so we decided to step out on faith.
